The Broadway musical, based on the 1988 Tim Burton film, originally opened at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theater on April 25, 2019, and later announced a June 2020 closing (which was moved up due to the industry-wide shutdown in March 2020). The closing notice, prompted by the theater owner, was notable because the grosses for the musical were on an uptick, which the production credited to growing fan engagement. However, The Music Man was slated to take that theater. The current cast includes Alex Brightman as Beetlejuice, Elizabeth Teeter as Lydia, Kerry Butler, David Josefsberg, Adam Dannheisser, Leslie Rodriguez Kritzer, Michelle Aravena, Kelvin Moon Loh, Zonya Love, Danny Rutigliano, and Dana Steingold. After the curtain comes down on Broadway, Beetlejuice is embarking on a 26-city national tour, beginning on Dec. 6 in San Francisco. When Beetlejuice makes its final Broadway bow, it will have played 27 previews and 366 regular performances at the Winter Garden Theatre and 313 regular performances at the Marquis Theater, for a total of 679 shows. Beetlejuice will be touring throughout the country making its way to Philadelphia and so many states as Alex Brightman takes the character of Beetlejuice to a whole new level. For those who saw the show on Broadway, it may be somewhat sad knowing it won’t be on Broadway anymore, but very exciting to see it take off more and more to new audiences.
